Does weather affect cats?

This forum is for cat lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your cat.

We've had some really strange weather lately.
One week it's in the 30's at night and 50's during
the day... next week it's up to almost 80 in the
day. I know humans can get a little sniffle when
the weather is changing so fast... can this happen
for cats too? I've always been the sneezer in the
house, but mama's noticed it's more frequent in
the last couple days. I'm not behaving any
different in any other way... is this just a passing
thing you think? Even though I'm an indoor kitty
the temp changes affect how the air system in
the house runs... should I accompany my sister
Kittanna to the vet next week??

My sniffles seem to have stopped now... it only lasted three days
or so... has anyone no idea on this?

I am not sure. I know that I get extra snuggly this time of year.

Last year around late winter/early spring mom took me to see the vet because I had a watery eye for a few days. After the vet looked at my records, we realized that I had been in that same time of year for the past 2 years. It was seasonal allergies.

Maybe you were sniffly since the house is shut up and the heaters are on.

Glad you are feeling better.
